Great Way To Experience Cuba!

Reviewed By CAM - Massapequa, New York | Traveled to Cuba ~ Caribbean
Gene made planning our first time visit to Cuba seamless! His knowledge of Cuba, the Cruise line (Celestyal), and the "Authentic Cuban Experience" we had on board was exceptional. Gene was able to secure timely and reasonable flight prices and arranged for us to stay in a hotel the night before the ship sailed that was close to both the airport and the cruise terminal . This was a wonderful way to begin our trip. Gene made sure he spoke to us before sailing to review documents and answer any questions we had. Our trip was memorable from start to finish thanks to Gene's fine efforts.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Gene Jochen responded:
Thank you for your review. So glad you had a wonderful and memorable trip. I'd love to help others see Cuba for the first time as well. Spread the word!

Thank-you Costa Rica We Love You !

Reviewed By DCL - Oshawa, ON | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
I met with Gene to plan a 25th Anniversary trip with my Wife to Costa Rica without any knowledge what so ever of the Country and destinations. We knew we just wanted to see Costa Rica.
After an initial consult with Gene to determine our needs, he presented 3 different resort options all with different pros & cons. We met again and reviewed each resort together before landing on Dreams Las Mereas.
Turned out to be best trip ever !!! The resort was the best we have ever stayed at and the entire trip was everything we hoped for in Costa Rica.
Upon our return Gene requested a post mortem over a coffee to better understand our experience and ensure we were completely satisfied with the trip overall. Great follow-up ! We will definitely be planning our next trip with Gene at Be Smart Travel !
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Gene Jochen responded:
Thank you so much for sharing your experience! So glad we could help find the perfect vacation/anniversary trip for you both. I'm truly humbled. Looking forward to topping this with your next trip.
